The Circumpolar Arctic is rich in oral histories and stories that frame and give shape to the world in a spectrum of dialects. Inuit artists reinterpret this in their art, creating narratives about themselves, their place in the world, their practises and their environment.
Featuring a interview with recent Governor General’s Award winner Germaine Arnaktauyok, an nexamination of Elisapie’s musical and cultural oeuvre, written and visual narratives from historical and contemporary storytellers and art by Jesse Oonark, Oshuitok Ipeelee, Kablusiak and more, the Storytelling issue spins a yarn that ties past and future together.
Published by the Inuit Art Foundation since 1986, the Inuit Art Quarterly is the only magazine dedicated to circumpolar Indigenous art and artists. Widely considered one of the most significant voices for Indigenous art in the world, this award-winning magazine features both emerging and established artists, writers and curators.
